Back Pain

Approximately 70-90% of people suffer from low back pain at least once in their lives. Many cases will resolve within 3 months, however this time can be shortened dramatically with a quality assessment and treatment from a physiotherapist. At Macintosh Physiotherapy we pride ourselves on being able to quickly improve pain, movement and function levels in people suffering from an episode of acute low back pain, by assessing the cause and structures involved, and tailoring the treatment to suit. If you suffer from chronic low back pain (lasting more than 3 months), there is a variety of advice and exercise prescription available to improve your pain and movement. Specific manual therapy (including joint mobilisations), massage, dry needling, taping and specific exercises are examples of these treatments offered at Macintosh Physiotherapy.
